All fees which are to be paid to the EPO must be paid in euros by payment or transfer to a bank account held by the EPO. For persons having a deposit account with the EPO payment may be made by debit order. A debit order can also be submitted in electronic form via the EPO's Online Fee Payment portal. However, the automatic debiting facilities are not yet available for any fee payments to the EPO as receiving Office, ISA and IPEA. Furthermore, payment of fees by credit card is not possible and payment by cheque was abolished by the EPO in 2008. Each issue of the Official Journal provides guidance for the payment of fees.
